Law and Order
Law and Order

Dr. Elizabeth Olivet is a clinical psychologist who consults for the NYPD and District Attorney's office on Law & Order, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and Law & Order: Trial by Jury. She has also appeared on New York Undercover.


Olivet first works with the 27th Precinct as a grief counselor after Sgt. Max Greevey is murdered; she helps Greevey's partner, Mike Logan, come to terms with his death. (L&O: "Confession") She and Logan grow very close, and it is suggested that they had a brief affair. (L&O: "Betrayal") When Logan is forced to kill a man who later turned out to be an undercover cop, he goes to Olivet for counseling. (CI: "To the Bone") 

In the episode "Helpless", Olivet is molested, and later raped, by Dr. Alex Merritt, a gynecologist who had also sexually abused one of Olivet's patients. Merritt is eventually imprisoned for life for committing dozens of rapes, but Olivet is traumatized by her attack for many years afterward.

After leaving the DA's office, she went into private practice and, according to Emil Skoda, is teaching and now specializes in "kids with crime-related trauma." (L&O: "Refuge (1)") It is also implied that she is married with children.
